1 year ago, they were wheeling Jessica back to start her Open Heart Surgery.
Her surgery, her recovery, her year since then has been uneventful medically.Maybe instead, I should say
Her surgery, her recovery, her year since then has been REMARKABLE.
She had a great surgery - fast and efficient in all open heart surgery standards (<4 div="" hrs="" total="">
She was up and walking less than 6 hours after the surgery.
She was moved out of the ICU less than 24 hours after surgery.
She was discharged from the hospital less than 48 hours after surgery.
She was home and basically back to her normal.
She makes us happy everyday - she is our non-stop curious child, she unabashed, she is happy to meet people, she has baby radar and baby magnet (she can spot a baby from a long distance and get to them instantly), she has a heart of gold and she is truly a great sister to Alexis.
Happy 1 year anniversary Jessica - You're doing awesome. We'll enjoy the Cardiologist's report on May 1st.
